We really enjoy eating at Durango's, there is a lot going on if you eat in the bar as well. Taco Tuesday's are quite popular. We usually eat in the restaurant The staff and owner are all very friendly and welcoming!

Went with my wife for happy hour, $1.50 tacos are cheap and the taste it, meat was awful, hardly a speck of cheese and old shredded lettuce.. Drinks, happy hour margaritas were sour, bad mix and very cheap tequila, had one and got a headache. Place was crowded, but I wont ever go back.

Very friendly, welcoming staff. Prompt service. Atmosphere is pleasant. I ordered the shredded beef taco salad which was fresh and wholesome. My sister ordered the fajita salad with beef and chicken. My husband ordered the beef taco. Our only complaint was with the beef. It was very salty. Otherwise our meals were pretty good.

Food is good here. I have one complaint and that is there is no mild salsa for the faint of heart. Me!

The place can get jumping on Friday's, get there early. The food is average to slightly above average in my opinion. I have enjoyed the Tostadas Carnitas several times...

We haven't been here in awhile and pleased that we chose to eat lunch there the other day. The menu is extensive and the food really good. It is a little pricey for Mexican food and there are additional charges for adding sour cream, guacamole, and substituting flour for corn tortillas. The service was a bit slow, but that may... More

Ok.... If you like getting a really good deal on some good tacos...visit Durangos on Placerville Dr on Tuesdays!!! Choose from shredded chicken or ground beef. Both kinds stiffed with a suprising amount of meat..all for only $1.50 each. Oh, did I mention the margaritas?! Ask for an upgrade to the top shelf tequilla for a small fee....Fun and inexpensive!

Sit-down restaurant, good food, big bar, strong drinks, good friendly service... Nothing exceptional, but it's a good place; I keep going back. Try it, you'll like it!
